    All aquatic life does not belong in these awful places or aquariums. Shows how bloody disgusting humans are as a race, would you be happy to have someone take your kids away from you with no explanation? Would you take your kids to prisons to watch raping and violence for entertainment, this is so fucking wrong how can people not see this? And if anyone says for research purposes that's fucking bollocks!!!! 🤬

    Born in freedom, forced to live in bondage. Rehabilitated and returned to freedom. He crossed an ocean: from Iceland to Norway. He was a healthy weight and seemed fine when he arrived. Yes he sought out humans but he was still free. He had plenty of room to swim and those that knew him claimed he was happy. It’s true he died but as the old freedom fighter saying goes: “Better to die on your feet that to live on your knees “ thank goodness he didn’t die a slave (on his knees) All captive Marine Mammals deserve this chance: even if it is just a sea sanctuary (a netted off bay) much better than a tiny prison.
